This is one of the best Historical Novels I have read. Mr. Lovatt brings to life the day to day lives of everyone and in my case I became so involved that I was actually able to hear, see and feel the action. A must read for any History Buff. Excellently done.

Josiah Stubb: The Siege of Louisbourg by C.W. Lovatt is an amazing book.  I'm not a historian by any means, but the story line and characters ring so close to true as to sway of more fact than fiction.  These characters are tough and willing to do whatever it takes to survive.  It is amazing how strongly I felt for all of them, good and bad.  The battle scenes are nothing short of genius.  And, without giving spoilers, I loved the flashbacks into the back stories of the characters.  Josiah is hero, a hero full of hope.  Well done indeed.

I received the book from the author for an honest review.  Written from one protagonist point of view, I found Josiah Stubb a fascinating character. His casual way of relaying his story to us in the midst of the Battle of Louisbourg, draws you into his own battle of life and choices; in his case choices that were forced upon him. Shining in the midst of all the turmoil, his longing for his sweetheart and his relationships with friends and his superiors.  Through his eyes, you get a closer look at the battle itself as well as the life he left behind, and the reasons for being in the army. His maturity, strong character and intelligence the very highlight of the whole book. You could not help but to admire him. Every unique character was masterful crafted to give you a better perspective of the times and the things they faced.   You could not help but to indulge yourself in the writing, the characters and the plot as the scenes unfold.  Really a great tribute for the Siege of Louisbourg, and the people who lived through it. Just love the cover, it's the perfect design for this book and the time period.
